The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office, in collaboration with all police agencies in Dodge County, will continue to pursue these deadly drugs and dealers. We are very proud of the exemplary work of our entire team as they have been making significant impacts with recent arrests. Unfortunately, until something is done to cut off the source of these drugs at the southern border, it will be a difficult uphill battle for our law enforcement efforts in Dodge County.
